About this trip

From the modern metropolises of Marrakech and Casablanca to the historic souks (markets) of Fes to the sands of the Sahara, Morocco is a country that has beguiled visitors for centuries. Discover its magnificent food traditions, history and heritage for yourself in a 12-day itinerary that takes you beyond tourist circuits and immerses you in Morocco’s enchanting cultures and cuisines.


In addition to guided visits to lively medinas (historic city centers) and souks (markets), cooking classes and dining at some of Morocco’s best restaurants, you will spend a night under the stars in a luxury camp in the Sahara, explore a fortress in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, practice a traditional Moroccan handicraft and tour a Moroccan vineyard (with tastings, of course!)

Since the Arab Spring, Morocco has had a stable path to political reform as the progressive King of Morocco pushed through constitutional reforms in 2012. Its citizens believe that Islam is not in conflict with the modern world, and in conjunction with a vigilant national security, Morocco is a safe and inspiring destination where international tourism grows year on year.
